Custody fee on ISA accounts

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi, I'm new to the community so sorry if i'm missing something obvious here.

Is the custody fee still charged if I make trades only on my stocks and shares ISA? I currently hold a share dealing account, with no cash or open positions, and a stocks and shares ISA, with 4 trades this month.

So, will I be charged the £24 quarterly custody fee in this circumstance? And also, will the commission rates be lower next month, as I have made the required 3+ trades this month?

Thanks in advance.

I found the custody fees confusing too! Does the custody fee apply to both the share dealing and ISA account separately (e.g. if I didn't trade in either, would I end up paying £48)?

I don't think you'll get charged on your share dealing account as you have no open positions - but I am new to this too.

It says in their fees section.

Deal three or more times on your share dealing account during the quarter

No mention of ISA in above criteria, It looks a custody fee is chargeable then. 

Don't know for sure, I also am looking to get the exact answer.

I queried this via IG support chat before opening my ISA. I was advised the custody fee would only be applied once for both Share Dealing and ISA and only then if a minimum of 3 trades were not made in the previous quarter (in either account or in a combination of the two). A dealing account with zero holdings would not incur a custody charge anyway, as it's a fee for holding custody of shares, rather than an account management or inactivity fee.

In a similar way, 3 trades made in my dealing account in March entitled me to the £3 UK commission rate and free US dealing in my ISA account from the moment I opened it on 6 April.

Hope that helps.

    • Is it possible to trade the MERVAL index on IG?
    • New data from Canada shows that lockdowns aren't so bad after all, well for some of us anyway. So long as they can keep finding replacement drivers to deliver my stuff everything is fine.    
    • I don't actually know too much about the great reset plan and have never looked into it closely but those that have (Prince Charles, Justin Trudeau etc) all remark on what an opportunity Covid-19 is to get the plan moving so I remain suspicious. The covid numbers are unreliable and problematic, if you go into hospital having had a heart attack you will be tested for covid with the PCR test which is know to give a very high number of false positives. If you test positive you go on the covid cases list and the covid admissions list and if you die from the heart attack you will go on the covid deaths list but it may well be you never actually had covid at all. No matter how you count it though the main point is that if there really was a deadly pandemic sweeping the land then total deaths this year would be way up on the average and they just aren't. I have posted data from the UK, Sweden, Ireland and now the US and all show the same thing, the total number of deaths for this year is normal. Also, normal winter pressures mean hospitals always fill up at this time of year, data I've seen so far for this year is not out of the ordinary but no doubt MSM are shouting CASES!!! Best of luck to you too.
